Radiology Expert Witness

Radiology Expert Witness

A Radiologist is a physician who uses imaging methodologies to diagnose and manage patients and provide therapeutic options. Physicians practicing in the field of Radiology specialize in Diagnostic Radiology, Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology or Radiation Oncology. The Board also certifies in Medical Physics and issues specific certificates within this discipline. Med League provides Radiology Expert Witness to plaintiff & defense attorneys nationwide.

Radiology Specialties and Subspecialties

Diagnostic Radiology

A Diagnostic Radiologist uses x-rays, radionuclides, ultrasound and electromagnetic radiation to diagnose and treat disease. Training required is five years: one year of clinical training, followed by four years of Radiology training. The majority of trainees complete an additional year of training during a fellowship. A Diagnostic Radiologist who wishes to specialize in one of the six areas listed below must first certify in Diagnostic Radiology.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Neuroradiology
  • Nuclear Radiology
  • Pain Medicine
  • Pediatric Radiology
  • Vascular and Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology

An Interventional Radiologist combines competence in imaging, image-guided minimally invasive procedures and periprocedural patient care to diagnose and treat benign and malignant conditions of the thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities. Therapies include embolization, angioplasty, stent placement, thrombus management, drainage, and ablation, among others. Training includes a minimum of three years of Diagnostic Radiology and two years of Interventional Radiology, leading to primary certification in Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Neuroradiology
  • Nuclear Radiology
  • Pain Medicine
  • Pediatric Radiology

Radiation Oncology

A Radiation Oncologist uses ionizing radiation and other modalities to treat malignant and some benign diseases. Radiation Oncologists may also use computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and hyperthermia (heat) as additional interventions to aid in treatment planning and delivery. Training required is five years: one year of general clinical work, followed by four years of dedicated Radiation Oncology training.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Pain Medicine

Medical Physics

The discipline of Medical Physics includes the three specialty areas of Diagnostic Medical Physics, Nuclear Medical Physics, and Therapeutic Medical Physics. Medical physicists support the diagnosis and treatment of disease through their understanding of the underlying scientific principles of imaging and therapeutic processes. They use this knowledge to perform or supervise technical aspects of procedures to ensure safe and effective delivery of radiation for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The type of training varies per specialty area.
